Christmas Roundup

a robot

Received a new niece.

Revised tally: 5 nephews, 2 nieces. Yay Katie.

Invented dozens of Christmas stories for a niece and nephew, including the one with rudolph and the bear trap, the one with santa and the exploding chimney, the one with the monster who chops off childrens fingers; my best work I swear. But niece and nephew kept pleading: tell us another one, but make it funny.

Taught said niece and nephew to master MS paint.

Attracted yet another cyclone. I visit beaches, storms arrive! It's 'a very mild super power'.

Read about F#. Wrote fractals in logo, sans computer. (Have typed them up since, see below).

Drew robots. Top fun and very childish.

More info about logo after the jump.

The Daily Grind has ground to a halt. Fare well Mike!
